Revealed: The Espionage Kit of the CIA Agent Busted in Russia

Russia has released photos of the equipment Ryan Christopher Fogle was carrying on him when he was arrested on Monday. Russia claims Fogle was attempting to recruit a Russian intelligence officer. Fogle was caught in Vorontsovski Park, an area in south-east Moscow,

Fogle being arrested.

A letter in Russian, which Fogle carried, stated, according to the Daily Mail: 
 Dear friend 
 We are ready to offer you $100,000 [£65,000] and discuss your experience, expertise and co-operation, and the payment may go much higher if you are ready to answer certain questions.
For long-term co-operation we offer $1million [£650,000] per year. 

The recruit is instructed to use an internet cafe to ‘create a new Gmail mailbox which you will use only for staying in touch with us’

After his arrest, he was taken to the FSB headquarters at the Lubyanka, in Moscow, and later handed over to the US embassy in keeping with diplomatic protocols.


  1. Stinks to high heaven. This kit is akin to something you'd find advertised on the back pages of a child's magazine.

  2. Most of that stuff is lame. He didn't even have a smart phone. The CIA must be feeling the effects of printing too much money.

    1. If you'd like to fly under the radar then a cheap phone with a throw-away sim and prepaid minutes is the way to go.

  3. Hmmmmm, apparently the only difference between the pockets of a CIA agent and a libertarian-survivalist is envelopes with thousands of Euros.

  4. Eliminate #5 & #12 and the "spy kit" looks to be the same as it was in the 60's.

    It's almost cartoonish.
